$ apt-get source libwxgtk2.4

$ su
# dpkg -i ../libwxgtk2.4*.deb

You'll definitely need the "lib" package to run that other app.
You'll need the -dev package (or maybe it's called wxwin2.4-headers)
to compile that other app.

You won't need the docs or examples unless you plan on writing code.

I don't know how you came up with 11 packages.


Q: What is the difference between open-source and commercial software?
A: If you have a problem with commercial software you can call a phone
   number and they will tell you it might be solved in a future version.
   For open-source sofware there isn't a phone number to call, but you
   get the solution within a day.
